Crime Stoppers of Michigan is offering a $2,500 reward for tips in a fatal hit-and-run reported in Romulus this month.

A man was walking on the west shoulder of southbound Middlebelt Road between Eureka and Pennsylvania at about 7 p.m. Feb. 10 when a 2004-2005 beige or tan Buick Rendezvous CX struck him, officials said in a statement.

“The vehicle did not stop after striking the victim and fled the scene southbound on Middlebelt Road toward Pennsylvania,” the release read.

The pedestrian, identified only as a 43-year-old man, later died from his injuries.

Authorities are working to find the driver of the Buick, which they said is missing a front passenger side mirror and has extensive damage to the front passenger side headlight.

Anyone with information can call Crime Stoppers at (800) SPEAK-UP, go to www.1800speakup.org or text CSM and a tip to 274637.
